'6 2nd gear boost limiter What do the values on Tach mean
'7 3rd gear boost limiter What do the values on Tach mean
Those would help a lot for tuning in my lc

'7 3rd gear boost limiter. (Tach = boost cap / 3)

So final question. The boost cap divided by 3, is it the boost reduction we are after or is it the absolute max boost we are targeting. My understanding it is the max boost you want the JB4 to run, with the lowest boost possible being stock target.

Now on an absolute target map can you target below stock targets?

The boost cap is the maximum allowable boost per that gear. Boost can not target below the factory boost, but the factory boost might drop to 2psi if you're spinning really badly, so even lower values here will be more aggressive than higher values.

hi terry
i bought the jb4 last month
it came with the aluminum case and new obd plug
i wonder which firmware i have (i ordered the usb cable...)
but the real question is :

i tried to understand from the videos but still i cant get it
u use only one button to control everything?
can u post which buttons i need to use to enter the system and toggle maps , other stuff

i mean , something like the n54 jb4 chart that i can print and see all the option

but for now i install the bms intake and jb4 and i dont know how to use it
and "turn it on"
thanks

The video in the first post explains it pretty clearly. Watch it a couple times. There is a menu list as well in the first post and in post 1203.

Hi Terry. Two questions:
a) Can I permanently drive the car on Map0?
b) does the JB4 still block the CAN Access with OBD Firmware + OBD Plug when I pull the Plug out?

a) Yes.
b) If the plug is removed from the OBDII the JB4 turns in to Stage1 without CANbus access.

Hi T.
Installed everything except EWG wires. Didn't connect them together and just put them out of the way. Should I have connected them?

Thank You.
Any plans to enhance steering wheel controls?
They are quite slow and don't seem to respond to every input.

Exhaust flap seems to be closing while driving with Jb set to OPEN (arrow to the left). Why is that? I'm running Map0 and they open first and seem to go back to OEM after some time (Jb still shows OPEN).

Edit:
Would be nice to have a Fast-Map-Switch-Button to toggle between two Maps faster. At the moment it really takes ages if you need/want a fast Map switch.

Map 0 disables CANflap. If you want stock mapping with CANbus control use map 4.

What is the 1.51 version on the front page? I don't see any release notes around it? A full release notes history would really be great

I'm guessing this firmware has to do with driving the car without the MAF sensors attached that T was talking to me about a couple of days ago.. But I could be totally wrong.

Hi T.
Could you explain what Map5 is all about? Does it feel like a non-turbo car with this map or what does it do?

It's just an alternative boost profile that adds less boost at lower RPM and more at higher RPM. Try it out. Some like it. Most hate it. Myself among the latter group.

Sounds good to me .
Boost is still above stock?
~ how much more than stock @ low/mid/high range?

Regarding Map6:
Is it also possible to adjust the Timing on Map6 or is it an "autolearn"/fixed value?

BTW:
Here is how I installed my JB.
Nearly undetectable.

Red is the main harness, green the attached sensors (no EWG) and turquoise is OBD + USB cable.

Really nice to install. Thank you for the high quality product, T.

Timing uses the DME adaption system within current production maps. Works well as its under timed from the factory a bit. And we've got some addl stuff we're testing on that front.

On map 5 just log it and you'll see its curve under the "target" line in the chart.

Now on an absolute target map can you target below stock targets?

Mike
so if I am understanding this correctly, the boost cap on the tach for example for 6k rpm shown /3 would be a maximum of 20 psi and an 8k RPM shown would allow 26.6 psi?
